Addresscloud Fire

An introduction to the fields in Addresscloud Fire.

  • Risk Remoteness

We calculate the drive time to the nearest fire station from the postcode centroid. We then rank every postcode in the country in terms of distance to the nearest fire station. We apply a normal distribution to this so a score of 5 would mean that the drive time is in the top ~2.5%, a score of 4 would be the next ~13.5%. Most properties would be in the 3 band (1 s.d. either side of the mean). A score of 1 would mean the property is very close to a fire station.
